The Florida Supreme Court has appointed Dan Rogers to serve multiple terms on the Florida Standard Jury Instructions Committee (Civil) and recently named him the committee’s vice chair for 2021 following his first term as vice chair in 2020. The committee is the entity responsible for preparing, and where necessary amending and revising, the standard jury instructions used in civil trials in Florida courts.
“Proper jury instructions are fundamental to the rule of law and our judicial system, helping ensure all parties receive a fair and impartial trial,” said Rogers, who has been active with the committee for a decade and named managing partner of Shook Miami in 2020.
Rogers has a diverse practice representing individuals and companies in all types of civil litigation across a variety of industries. His experience focuses on defending class actions, business and product liability disputes and appellate matters. Rogers has argued more than 50 appeals, in Florida and courts across the country, and is a Board Certified Specialist in Appellate Practice.
